Apple’s extensions in iOS 8 can come in handy, especially when they come in the form of aNote. Whenever you need to point out something on a website or within a photo, simply tap the share button within Safari or Photos and activate the aNote extension. You can then annotate the shot by drawing all over it with a variety of colors, adding shapes, or adding text. Your annotated shots can be saved or shared. It’s remarkably simple, but if you’ve never used an extension within iOS 8 before, aNote comes with a quick set of instructions to help you out.
